The sheer amount of websites devoted to classical studies, and the ancient Greeks in particular, is staggering.

Here are five useful sites, all of them informative and authoritative, which will enhance your study of Greek tragedy.

  Didaskalia:  Ancient Theater Today.

"Your electronic source for the latest developments in Greek and Roman drama, dance, and music as they are performed today."  The site is also home to a respected classical journal, also called Didaskalia.

Of particular interest are the Introduction to Greek Stagecraft page and the virtual reconstruction of the Theater of Dionysus.

  The Ancient City of Athens.

Professors Kevin Glowacki and Nancy Klein of the Department of Classical Studies at Indiana University have created this comprehensive photographic archive of the archaeological and architectural remains of ancient Athens.

Images relating to the Theater of Dionysus are indexed on the page devoted to the south slope of the Acropolis.

  The Perseus Project.

The Perseus Project is the premiere scholarly website for studying antiquity.  The online version contains images, texts, dictionaries — all of it well organized and fairly quick to access.

Furthermore, the CD-ROM version of Perseus, which contains even more information than its online counterpart, is available over the local Skidmore network.  From "Network Neighborhood" click on \\cits6\library\cdrom\ perseus\experts.txt for instructions on accessing the Perseus CD-ROM from your own machine.

  Interactive Ancient Mediterranean.

Sponsored in part by the departments of Classics and History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, IAM is an "on-line atlas of the ancient Mediterranean world designed to serve the needs and interests of students" at all levels of education.

  Encyclopedia Mythica.

A searchable database of mythical personae, mostly text but with some images.  If you need fast background information on a character in our readings, this is your first stop.  The author of the site is Mr. Micha F. Lindemans of the Netherlands, who works with various contributors on the articles.
